Holgate windmill is well worth a visit, but check the opening times on the website as it not open every weekend. Beautifully restored, this unusual attraction was interesting for our whole family, (five year old girl, seven year old boy, two adults).
The guides are knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We bought some flour and some recipes and can really recommend the cheese and apple cakes which were easy to make and very tasty.
We were there about an hour and a quarter, and in the end had to drag the kids away as they wanted to carry on grinding flour by hand, under the supervision of the miller.
The only thing to be aware of is that the ladders to get between floors are steep and would not be suitable for people with mobility difficulties.
